Will it be a battle? Yes. Will the Blues finish in fourth in the West? Doubtful. Will they make the playoffs? Likely.
Great article. Sabremetrics can provide some useful insight, and I agree with the point that a 48 game season allows for a greater fluctuation of results than an 82 game season. The Blues players need to embrace the fact that their season is in jeopardy and play with more urgency. Another losing streak at this point could easily put the playoffs out of reach because they would have to play far better than they are capable and hope for some luck.
